In the next couple of weeks, I am going to give a whirlwind tour of how you can turn your Raspberry Pi into a full functioning dev work station. When I first purchased my Raspberry Pi, I thought that it was only going to be useful for emulating legacy video game systems and running Libre Office - but that turned out to not be the case. I sort of stumbled into the Pi as a development machine after getting the second consecutive monthly $50 charge to my azure account for simply hosting a hello world AngularJs site and a couple of VMs. As I explored alternatives, I decided I would test out development and app hosting on a Raspberry Pi and found myself very pleasantly surprised.

Over the next couple of weeks I’ll be going over all things related to developing code for the Raspberry Pi some of the topics I’ll touch are the following

  1. Setting Up your Pi From Scratch
  2. Configuring the Pi as a Dev Environment
  3. Raspberry Pi for the .Net Developer
  4. Web Hosting
  5. Azure DevOps Continuous Integration

In getting this all configured, I had a bunch of help from other devs out there that had cracked various pieces of the puzzle and I’ll try to always link to their work as I go along. This home brew project has been one of the most satisfying I’ve worked on in a long time and I hope you enjoy it as much as I have.
